BUS 120 — Innovations in Business
This course provides the 21st Century foundation for business students who will need newly-shaped perspectives, solid research and communication skills, positive ethical spirits, and new technological resources to work and make decisions in a global economy. Through hands-on research projects, a live business learning “lab,” and multiple field trips, students in this course learn the basics of business, the process of innovation, and the role that business plays in society, and are encouraged to develop their own innovative capacities, whether they eventually want to start a business, shine in a nonprofit, or excel in corporate America. Students begin to learn how to think as business professionals, entrepreneurs, and innovators, and will learn how to harness information and accurate knowledge to understand industrial and institutional trends and to anticipate future business conditions. Through communication-intensive activities and assignments, students are introduced to principles of economics, business ownership, management, marketing, finance, accounting, business ethics, international business issues, production, and human resources. Through course activities students will meet and interact with live business owners as well as business students from other colleges.
BUS 120 is the prerequisite for all business courses.
